Caught On Camera: Arizona Police Chase Ends In Violent Crash

Mitchell Timothy Taebel of Long Beach, Indiana, and Los Angeles remained jailed on suspicion of endangerment, aggravated assault, unlawful flight and other crimes after being arrested following the crash Wednesday in Tempe on a street near Arizona State University's main campus.

Helicopters and DPS troopers followed the suspect as he continued to drive at high speeds along Interstate 10, eventually transitioning onto the 202.

Investigators say the suspect was on the phone with law enforcement during the chase.

Troopers attempted to throw down stop sticks on ST 85, but the SUV managed to swerve around them and kept going. The suspect reportedly told authorities he considered himself a "sovereign citizen", someone not bound by government laws. At about 10:50 a.m., the suspect vehicle exited the freeway and headed south on Rural Road toward the ASU campus.
